Did you use the Wi-Fi on the Calipso? They are the only boat I've seen that offers it in the Galapagos (which is critical for my GF who can't go 100% off the grid with her work). I'm wondering if it's fast and reliable enough for routine email correspondence with maybe a few small attachments, not for downloading photos, social media, or streaming (of course).
Yes there was wifi on board but I was only able to access email as websites were too big to load. I was told by the crew that internet in general all over the Galapagos isn't great anyway so even when I got back on one of the islands, it was pretty impossible to post any photos or videos until I got back to the mainland. The further the boat went out especially to Darwin and Wolf islands where it's so remote, the slower any connection became. So I would suggest that this type of trip should be regarded as one to completely go pretty well offline for the week.
